Yes, you heard right! Piña Colada Ice Cream! A cocktail made into ice cream is just the right thing for this weather! Although I’ve to admit, that every kind of ice cream is just right for this weather.
I’m a huge sucker for Piña Colada and what would be more obvious to make ice cream out of it? Said and done!
So I made a caribbean ice cream for you with roasted pineapples, coconut milk, brown sugar, rum and roasted shredded coconut.
